Project CARS: PC specs announced with more game details

Project CARS is looking to be 2015’s biggest racing game on PC, following its May release on PS4 and XBox One. Developer Slightly Mad Studios has now revealed the minimum and recommended PC specs for the game, which you can read below.

In an FAQ published on its website, the developer gives more information about this upcoming racing sim. Here are the most important points:

– There may be early access or a demo available via Steam.

– Project CARS features road cars, karts, track day cars, supercars, Le Mans Protoypes, GTs, and ‘modern open wheel’ cars (like Formula 1).

– It will have the largest collection of locations “of any recent racing game”, including circuits and point-to-point tracks.

– Online multiplayer races on 64-bit PCs will feature up to 32 racers, double that of the console versions. There is no local split screen option.

Slightly Mad Studios has a good track record of making racing games, being responsible for Need for Speed Shift and its sequel. That said, Project CARS promises a more realistic driving experience than their previous work, putting it alongside console exclusives Forza and Gran Turismo. It looks like it will be as deep and complex as you want it to be, while still being accessible for people who just want to race.
